Free cancer event provides education and hope

ANDERSON — A celebration of cancer survival and information about “Genetics and Cancer” and “New Breakthroughs in Cancer Treatment” will be presented by St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital on Tuesday, Oct. 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Madison Park Church of God.

“We will be celebrating cancer survival and advancements in the treatment of cancer,” said Sandy Crawley, director of the Cancer Center at St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital. “Whether you are a cancer survivor, newly diagnosed, a family member or just someone interested in cancer, we invite you to attend. We believe this will be an inspiring evening of hope for everyone.”

Dawn McIlvried, a certified genetic counselor with St. Vincent Cancer Genetics Risk Assessment program, will speak about genetics and how it relates to the development of cancer, how genetic testing can be helpful for families and the future of genetics and personalized management of cancer. Dr. Ubaidullah Sharief, medical oncologist at The Cancer Center at St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital, will share information about new breakthroughs in the treatment of various types of cancer. He will discuss advancements in the use of new drugs that target unique characteristics of cancer cells, specifically in breast and lung tumors and leukemia. The goal is to minimize harm to normal cells while delivering targeting therapy to cancer cells.

“The program is free and hosted by St. Vincent Hands and Hearts Breast Cancer Support Group in support of all types of cancer patients and our work to provide hope and eradicate cancer,” Crawley said.

Seating is limited. A baked potato and toppings buffet will be served, so participants should register by Sept. 26. Register by calling 608-2677 or email rita.byanski@stvincent.org.
